It's been barely a month, and you failed your resolution. Maybe it was to work out, lose weight, or save money, but whatever it was, it didn't work out. You might have not gone to the gym even though it's five minutes away, gained the Freshman 15, or even spent all of your money at the bars. It doesn't matter what you did, it matters what you do now. You failed your resolution, now what?

1. Realize that you aren't alone.

So many people fail their resolutions, and there's a good reason why. You are setting yourself up for failure. The changes you are trying to make happen too fast, and they don't become routine. Self discipline is hard, it's even harder when it comes out of nowhere.

2. Set SMART goals.

You've probably heard about SMART goals, but they work. This is because it gets you to reflect on what you're actually doing and if your goal is even possible. A lot of the time, your goal might not be possible or even well defined.

3. Give yourself a why.

Why do you want to lose weight? Work out? Save money? If you don't have a reason why, you won't want to do it. Make it personal to you, and it will be easier to convince yourself to achieve your (now SMART) goals.
